2009 Giant Anthem X2 CREAKING NOISE
I just had all frame bearings replaced by an authorized Giant dealer and it still produces a creaking noise when the suspension is compressed. The mechanic did not replace the hardware, because he believed those bits were in good condition. I am not mechanical. I have no idea where it could be coming from, but I firmly believe the noise is coming from the frame. I can reproduce the creaking noise when I sit still on the bike and slowly compress the suspension. ANY IDEAS? PLEASE HELP!
I have a 2009 anthemX also. The only thing that creaks are my seat post rails.
Hold the seat in both hands and move it to and fro and see if it creaks.
Try standing and pumping the suspension and see if it still creaks.
Check your bolts that hold your chainring to your crank is another popular creak.
I had this problem and it turned out to be a loose bolt on the main pivot. I didn't figure it out for like 15 rides and I was about to go insane.
as mainlane states - seat rails and chainrings are usual suspects, if all your suspension bolts are tight. In my case, the annoying creak is usually my chainring. I do a quick, overall bolt check every 4 or 5 rides, and there is usually something that needs a turn.
I had a creaking noise on my 2010 Giant Trance.

Hope this helps.
